Dixie D’Amelio Gets Ready for PUMA’s NYFW Show

The singer shows off her buzzed haircut and reveals how the new look has changed her style.

What is your typical getting ready process?

Glam is always my time to recenter myself and get prepared for the crazy day ahead. You will always catch me listening to anything from Lil Uzi to Billie Eillish. I also love letting my glam team pick the music — they always show me new artists!

Describe your look for the show:

I wanted to go for something effortless and cool which is what I feel Puma emulates. I can’t wait to see the all the looks in an elevated space and to take inspiration from the show. Being a part of the Puma family has been such a fun and empowering experience. It’s going to be such a fun night celebrating with friends and the Puma team!

What are your favorite and least favorite parts about fashion week?

Fashion week is the best time to be creative, take risks, and express yourself through your looks. To be able to have these times where I have a space to go out and do something crazy is SO fun. Down side… I haven’t slept. Fashion week is nonstop and so crazy with last minute changes every hour of the day so I definitely have to be in my toes this whole week.

What trends are you really into right now? Which do you hate?

I have been loving cargo pants lately. They’re so easy and effortless. I love slipping these on with a mini tank and some Puma sneakers and I’m ready to go. I don’t really hate anything but one trend that I gravitate less towards is the Y2K trend if I had to pick.

How has the fashion week reaction been to your new hair?

The reaction was insane! It was really cool to feel the love and support from everyone. I was so nervous when the big day came but when Laura turned the clippers on I was like, “You know what? This is going to be such a moment, let’s do it.”

It’s been something I’ve been dying to do since I was in elementary school. And to finally cross it off the bucket list was a really good feeling. I feel now more than ever I can be more expressive with my accessories and clothing, making bigger statements with my looks.
